Upgrade implications for the BlackBerry Configuration Database

When you upgrade the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server to the latest version, you must also upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database to the latest version. You can use the setup application to install or upgrade BlackBerry Enterprise Server components such as the BlackBerry Configuration Database. The installation or upgrade process upgrades the BlackBerry Configuration Database automatically so that the database and components run the same version. If you do not want to use the setup application to upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database, you can run the database upgrade scripts on the database server.

You cannot manage the BlackBerry Enterprise Server until you install the BlackBerry Administration Service version that is the same as the BlackBerry Configuration Database version or upgrade the BlackBerry Administration Service so that it is the same version as the BlackBerry Configuration Database.

You must move an MSDE database such as a BlackBerry Configuration Database from MSDE to a version of Microsoft® SQL Server® that Microsoft fully supports. To upgrade a BlackBerry Configuration Database and move it from MSDE to Microsoft SQL Server, you must create a copy of the BlackBerry Configuration Database, move the copy to Microsoft SQL Server, and then upgrade the BlackBerry Configuration Database on the Microsoft SQL Server to the latest version.
